"Una empacadora de alimentos se va a huelga reclamando la reinserción de cuatro compañeros despedidos injustamente. Marcos Luquín, un líder sindical comprometido y honesto, encabeza la lucha, pero una serie de turbios intereses políticos van contaminando el movimiento obrero hasta convertirlo en algo desdibujado, donde nadie sabe bien a bien a qué o a quién responde. Las horas violentas es un drama profundamente humano y una intensa crónica de la historia del sindicalismo mexicano, sus oscuras alianzas y permanentes traiciones. Una historia donde el compromiso con los intereses de los trabajadores es sólo un discurso articulado en función de camuflar intereses políticos, empoderar mafias y nutrir una de nuestras tradiciones nacionales más arraigadas: la corrupción." -- Cubierta
